Y’all, corporate Agile (tm) will kill your soul. If you want agility and developer happiness, be agile. If you want to reduce risk, have predictability, and detailed monitoring, just stick with whatever you were doing before. You can’t be agile.

At the new J.O.B. I consciously elected to keep work communications off my phone. Though I’ve never been asked to install anything, I’m interested by the unspoken social/cultural pressures that continually temp me to do so.

I just finished the summer issue of Plough Quarterly. It is a timely issue for the present moment when poverty and racism fuel by Mammon-obsessed capitalism explode in our country. I pray God sends leaders to guide us to a Christian society.

Is it just me or does every Kafka producer/consumer — no matter the language — seem like a giant hack by the time one is done writing it?

“Ökumenische Gemeinde Sankt Mang” ➡️➡️➡️ Ja oder Nein? (Für eine Deutschsprachige Gemeinde in East Nashville)

Smith & Lentz Vienna Lager makes me very happy inside! 🍺

Not to brag, but St. Octopus has invited me to join the Illuminati.

Also, “white” Christians: the GOP, the Constituion, and politics are not the answer. The blood of Christ alone is the answer. The healing community of the Church is the only cure for racism, hate, hurting, and violence. Go forth and make disciples!

Y’all, we have a hate, racism, mental health, and community problem in “white” America. We must address it. Please, let’s tightly restrict and regulate access to guns until we get this sorted.

Join us at Eastland Park today until noon. We’re meeting our neighbors. Pray God sends the people he has prepared our way!

I’m pretty proud of my brick dragon. Notice, especially, the cantilevered sections of the body. 🐉

I’m only 25 pages into Evangelical Theology and it’s 🔥. I totally get why a certain VDS professor is not a fan of Barth. My essays that semester would have been 🔥🔥 if I had read this.

Good stuff in this article. I supported the workers during “Prime Days” and purchased nothing. I, too, am trying to change habits and purchase more at physical, local shops.

I have many questions about this recipe my wife found yesterday. ———————————

In a vessel mix unitedly ail powder, onion explosive, Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp saline and 1/4 tsp shrub.

Leute, es passiert! Gottesdienst auf Deutsch. Monatlich. East Nashville. Mehr Information kommt bald. 🇩🇪🇦🇹🇨🇭

Hard choices this morning selecting my next book to read. In the end, Barth’s Evangelical Theology won out. I’m excited to read Barth fully for the first time!

I wish more IT leaders would read The Alliance. We are not a family. We are colleagues working together for a time to achieve shared and individual goals.

I’m only halfway through, but reading Reformation Anglicanism by Null and Yates I already realize I really need to move the Homilies up on my reading list.
